Life Goes On Event

Everything we do is to keep the hearts of WA beating.

13 - 20 OCTOBER IN YAGAN SQUARE 

Here at St John, we are committed to lead, educate and evolve the way front line health services is delivered in our community every day. Our aim is to be world leaders in community health care for the benefit of all Western Australians, and for the service of humanity.  

Restart A Heart Day

St John is supporting Restart a Heart Day, held on October 16. It’s a global initiative to raise awareness and education of CPR and AEDs (defibrillators) in our community. 63 people suffer from a cardiac arrest every day in Australia, that’s 25,000 a year. Only 1 in 10 survive.  It’s time for Australians to join together. Time counts in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. For every minute that passes without intervention, the chance of survival decreases by 10 per cent. Make it your aim to know CPR, and increase survival rates before emergency services arrive. Learn these skills and more at our Life Goes On Event.

Yagan Square is located within the arms of the William Street Horseshoe Bridge, between Roe and Wellington streets in Perth. Look for the orange buildings or the tall Digital Tower. Yagan Square is located on the border of Perth CBD and Northbridge and easily accessible on foot, bicycle and by public transport.

Train and Bus

Yagan Square is conveniently situated between Perth Train Station and Perth Busport. There’s direct access from the western end of Perth Train Station to the lower level of the square, and if you head east on the footpath from the busport you will find yourself at the square’s William Street Mall entrance.

You can find the Perth Underground Station just across Wellington Street or via the underground connection to Perth Train Station.

Visit Transperth's website for timetables and public transport information.

CAT Bus

Take the free CAT bus right to Yagan Square’s front door. There’s three routes that stop daily near the square every 5 – 15 minutes, from morning to the evenings. You can access live times on the Transperth website.

Yellow CAT – East Perth to West Perth loop

You can find the Yagan Square stop (24) on Wellington Street just near the Digital Tower if you’re heading east on the Yellow CAT, or get off at the Forrest Place stop (14) if you’re heading west.

Blue CAT – Northbridge to Barrack Street Jetty loop

The blue CAT stops right at the top of the Horseshoe Bridge stop (13) when heading south, directly across from the square’s upper level entrance. The Beaufort Street Bridge stop (4) is a 350m walk from the square and the closest option when heading north on the blue CAT.

Red CAT – East Perth to West Perth loop

The red CAT stops nearby at Perth Station stop (24) when heading east, and at Forrest Place stop (10) when heading west.

Parking

Paid on street parking is available in the surrounding city and Northbridge areas for periods ranging up to two hours during the day, with some free parking in the evenings.

You can find longer parking options just a short distance away if you need more time at Yagan Square. Visit City of Perth Parking (CPP) or Wilson Parking (WP) for locations, ACROD information, rates, opening hours and available bays.

Park your bike

There's a number of bike racks available for use at Yagan Square.


An Australian First

In our St John virtual reality, you are placed in an immersive illusion. You will be guided through important first aid topics, such as DRSABCD and defibrillator use by MIA. MIA is your Medical Information Assistant who will offer step by step instructions throughout your training.

VR 3

We can all agree that first aid training is incredibly valuable and well worth doing. However as technology advances, so must St John. There are 2 main barriers for people to do a first aid course; time and money. The new St John Skills eliminates those obstacles. Short, cost-effective training will allow us to conduct training all over WA. Think remote regional towns, think while you are waiting for a plane at the airport, think…anywhere!

Is it still as effective? Absolutely. Some could even argue that VR makes this an even more valuable learning experience because users can go at their own pace. Go back and repeat if they want to without the pressure of a full class. Users will also be transported into an “environment” that will more closely reflect real life scenarios. This could be a helpful tool to teach users to maintain composure in high-stress situations.
